About Habitat for Humanity of Wisconsin
420 S 1st St, #6, Milwaukee, WI 53204, US
To unite Habitat for Humanity affiliates throughout the state of Wisconsin in a coordinated effort to eliminate sub-standard housing.
Each year, Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Wisconsin connect several hundred low-income families in Wisconsin with safe, decent and affordable housing. While our affiliates are quite proud of what has been accomplished, we recognize that with increased collaboration and more state-wide efforts through a State Support organization, we can become an even more powerful force for affordable housing in Wisconsin. Habitat for Humanity of Wisconsin is patterned after a successful model of State Support Organizations (SSOs) being utilized in nearly 30 states that is having a significant impact, strengthening and supporting the work of local Habitat affiliates.
